PoliticsNation with Al Sharpton, June 11, 2012: Rev. Al Sharpton points out that the language "no duty to retreat" is used in 25 different "Stand Your Ground" laws, and that this is not a coincidence. ALEC and NRA have used Florida's bill as a template across the country. Adam Weinstein of Mother Jones, and Lisa Graves of the Center for Media and Democracy discuss the relationship between ALEC and the NRA.
